Fabric Info

Fabric Description

Every man should own an oxford shirt. Comfortable, hard-wearing, and incredibly versatile, oxfords are an absolute wardrobe staple. Our heavy oxfords have just the right amount of heft to them—they’re woven with a 40/1 x 21/2 construction for a fabric that feels substantial, but not overly thick. They’re also highly resilient, meaning they’ll last for years and only get better the more they’re washed and worn. You can dress an oxford up under a sport coat or dress it down with your favorite pair of jeans. It’s one of the few fabrics that can just as easily be worn with a tie as it can be worn rumpled and untucked. Our blue university stripe heavy oxford is is as timeless and easy to wear as it gets. Try it with our Soft Ivy Button Down Collar, Soft Front Placket, and a Soft One-Button Cuff for a classic oxford cloth button down (OCBD), or go with one of our soft spread collars for more of a sprezzy Italian vibe.

    I am used to heavy weight fabrics, but this felt a bit more like cardboard on the skin, despite two washes. Perhaps, it will soften with time.

    This was the first Proper Cloth fabric I really disliked, and I’ve ordered more than 10 different fabrics in the past. I know that it’s labeled as a heavy oxford, but the material is so thick and stiff. It almost feels like I’m wearing a shirt stiffened with wax or something. The fabric also feels super rough and is not comfortable on the skin at all. The collar area is extra thick and is almost like cardboard. I like the color and pattern, so I was really disappointed at the shirt material.

    I use this shirt for a casual “work” shirt, where I’m not at an office, but out doing errands, visiting, etc. I still look good, and professional. The fabric is strong, has heft. You can still dress it up with a tie, but I have an order in for “silkier/smoother” fabric for more “dressy” occasions.
